In an unprecedented case, we have just been informed by ABRSM UK of an important change to the Grade 1 editions of the new 2021 & 2022 Piano Exam Pieces.
These are the exact text from ABRSM UK:
|I am writing to let you know about an important change to the Grade 1 editions of the new 2021 & 2022 Piano Exam Pieces. We are committed to reflecting a world of underrepresented talent and musical stories through our commissioning and publications. We have recently made a change to the Grade 1 Piano syllabus to make it more representative, and this means the Piano Exam Pieces Grade 1 (both with and without CD) will now publish on a later date to the rest of the syllabus. We will communicate this new publication date and a new delivery schedule as soon as possible. Due to this change to Grade 1, we will also be updating the Piano Syllabus 2021 & 2022. We will make this available as a downloadable PDF – there will be no printed edition of this syllabus. |
